Gabby Giffords' Gun Control PAC Raised Nearly $12.5 Million in 2013

Gabrielle Giffords' gun control super PAC, Americans for Responsible Solutions (ARS), raised nearly $12.5 million in 2013.

The Huffington Post reported that ARS raised $6.6 million in the first six months of 2013, which was "more than any other super PAC." They raised approximately $5.8 million to finish out the year.

According to USA Today, in the last half of 2013, ARS benefited from big donations from "Texas-based Mostyn Law Firm," which gave $500,000, and "Silicon Valley venture capitalist Andrew Rappaport," who gave $100,000.

Giffords and her husband Mark Kelly plan to use the money to get pro-gun control candidates elected to Congress in November.

According to The Center of Public Integrity, ARS's fundraising performance was indicative of "liberal-aligned super PACs [which] combined to raise more than $40 million" in 2013. On the other hand, conservative-aligned super PACs raised a combined $20 million.

Michael Bloomberg's gun control super PAC, Independence USA, "raised nearly $6 million last year." That money will also be used in an attempt to impact congressional elections in November.

This is the same law firm giving tons of money to Wendy Davis, they gave her $500 million, too...
